The Mindfulness Curriculum



What is The Mindfulness Curriculum?

A framework and resource to support educators in bringing mindfulness into their classrooms. 

Co-developed by educators, psychologists and mindfulness experts, The Mindfulness Curriculum offers primary educators a structured but flexible framework which can be used as a comprehensive and stand-alone social and emotional learning program in the classroom, or adapted to complement existing Wellbeing programs. 



The Mindfulness Curriculum Scope and Sequence


The Mindfulness Curriculum is based around 20 topics which have been mapped to the Australian Curriculum and supports students in Year 1 to Year 6 to develop self awareness, self management, social awareness and social management skills.

The mindfulness based lessons and practices provide a consistent and practical approach to teaching and exploring these topics with students, as well as providing students with an opportunity to develop practical skills and strategies which support good mental health and wellbeing.

Educator Manuals

The Mindfulness Curriculum Educator Manuals in e-book and print formats, extend on the Smiling Mind App experience to give educators choice in the format that best works for them. 

The Educator Manuals are unlike any other - celebrating beautiful design and the impact that well designed resources and printed materials can have on our own wellbeing and enjoyment in using them.

The Educator Manuals are both reference guides and practical manuals and includes information on the science and benefits of mindfulness, practical tips for implementing mindfulness into your school as well as lesson plans and extra classroom and take-home activities. 

With extra space in each lesson to capture lesson notes, personal reflections and observations, and printed on beautiful paper sourced from responsible forestry practices, the Mindfulness Curriculum tactile experience invites you to mindfully engage the senses. 

The Mindfulness Curriculum Educator Manuals can be purchased through our online store, or as part of a package when booking a professional learning or workshop package for your school. 


Student Journals

The successful integration of mindfulness practice into daily life helps to strengthen the skills and strategies that students can take with them into adulthood. 

The Mindfulness Curriculum Student Journals have been designed to support students to take what has been learnt in the classroom and through personal reflection, deepen their understanding in line with each developmental stage of their lives.
